Q:- Since when did most Americans ever care what the rest of the world may or may not think about them?
A:- When it suits their agenda i guess....
There’s no question that this OP is a political hitpiece but it’s also factual. Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in October 2009, before he had done jack squat as president and the media had chills running up their legs because he was so awesome. Anyone who dared disagree with him, Hillary included, was a racist. He was as good as the second coming of Christ before he did anything. He promised the stars and nearly everyone bought it hook, line and sinker.
He was the perfect president who was going to repair the damage to America’s reputation all over the world. He was going to sit down and negotiate with his enemies and they would all be as charmed by his personality as we were here in America. He was a different kind of president because he lived among them and broke bread with them. He understood them in ways no president has ever understood international problems.
In the end, it turns out he isn’t any better than any other President. He doesn’t walk on water, he doesn’t heal the sick minds that exist around the world and he doesn’t have any more of a clue about what to do than president before him.
If you support him for his social agenda, that’s another thing altogether but his international record isn’t very good, particularly if you are honest enough to admit that his war on Libya clearly violated the War Powers Act and his refusal to even speak a positive word in support of the Iranian protesters was an utter failure, no matter how you slice it.
The OP has a valid point: Obama was over hyped and failed miserably when it came to delivering anything resembling the Nobel Peace Prize President we were promised.
Now... there is one group of people with some serious issues. The Miss Amerika Morons who actually believed our Miss Amerika President.
And I have to laugh at your last line, for it's the Libs who have been destroying America little by little over the past 70-years... it's you folks who value the Constitution as if it's a used piece of toilet paper.
And attack?! ROTFLOL... your party is the disgusting group of pukes who vote to send troops to war and then stab them in the back when they most needed support. You and your party illustrated you're lower than the lowest scum sticking to dark corners of this planet.
I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
And so what? He has said a lot of things, and hope for a lot of things, but not everything is possible.. that is politics.Obama was the one who said the world and Muslims will look at Amerika differently after HE was elected.
Again total denial of your own hero's complicity in the whole situation... classic conservative denial...Our Miss Amerika president. How much crap has this guy been shoveled his whole life to believe that dung? You've got to be a little more than living in some type of fantasy world to first believe such idiocy and then spout it to the world. Of course... the press never called him on it, or much else, and then there are the Miss Amerika Morons that voted for him believing it!
Listen, like it or not, repairing the damage that Bush did, both Jr and Sr and the damage of Reagan and even Clinton.. is not something that can happen overnight or maybe never. Point is, people on the right are blaming everything on Obama, when there is plenty of blame to go around and he certainly did not create the problems in the middle east, nor the policies that lead to the problems.
Look at Iran. They hate the US (the politician),.. why? Because of the policies of US administration from Eisenhower to Reagan... supporting a brutal dictator... is that also Obama's fault?
